Master 5 complex pattern techniques - Victorian Glasshouse

My theme for this project is based around the Victorian Glasshouse trend.

Key words: elegant, decorative, birds, classic, floral, delicate, opulent, vintage, Chinoiserie, feminine, adventure, timeless, botanical, roses, wealth, painted, detail, style, Victorian, intricate.

This theme evokes a sense of nostalgia, looking back to a time of elegance and beauty. Heavily influenced by travel during the Victorian period, florals have an exotic feel, bathed in opulent colours and delicate botanical details.

Here are my preliminary pencil sketches:

Here's my first overall pattern as a straight square repeat. I change the backgrounds rather than use recolour artwork as I didn't think it worked well for the look I wanted.
